COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As refreshingly crisp as a morning swim in a Great Lake, this brew is crafted with Pils and Munich malts. The pronounced hop character of this golden lager sparks thoughts of sandy beaches and rocky islands.
2011 vintage - 5.0% abv

4/22/2011. From bottle. Pours pale yellow with a white head. Malt, hops and floral aromas. Crisp, floral flavors with a hoppy finish. Not bad at all.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light pale straw color with a thin white head that fades into a spotty film. There is a couple spots of lace. The aroma is lightly grassy and makes me think of macro or mass produced lagers. The flavor is similar. The only difference is that there is a little bit of a grassier finish to the beer, but it's really, really thin. Reminds me of Third Coast Beer, only with slightly less lemon zest ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RespertFTW (520) - Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle. It is what it is and its pretty good for what it is. Clear light yellow pour with large white head. Wheat and grain aroma. Slightly bitter in the finish. High on my list of "premium" lagers

tectactoe (2014) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Bright goldenrod, with only a mild chill haze obscuring it; topped with a thin, bone-white film that is gone in a few moments. Aroma is plentiful on the grains, light bread notes, toast, and even a dollop of sweet-ish caramel/toffee. Musty and metallic, dried up hops hit in the finish. Taste contains grain, bread, a very small hint of sweet toffee, some musty hops, a finishing hint of lemon zest, a touch of lager yeast and a slight metallic tone. Not the best lager out there, but not bad. Refreshing.

Pours a light yellow. Some nice corn and Apple aromas. Sweet corn flavours with some bitterness at the end. Not bad.

Clear yellow color. Slight wheat aroma and flavor. Refreshing beer on a hot day, but very light in flavor.

Expensive for a lawn mower beer. Rated this with another app and BeerBuddy unfortunately won't let me import comments.
